Return of the Chinese menace
Did malicious Chinese hackers break into Congressional computers to figure out what lawmakers knew of China's human rights violations? Two House members, Rep. Christopher H. Smith of (R-N.J.) and Rep. Frank R. Wolf (R-Va.) have made this charge
, though Chinese officials deny the allegations
the Chinese threat before, especially as it pertains to Defense networks
As always, one thing we'd like to see more of in these charges is stronger evidence. After all, any script kiddie with port scanning software
can "attack" a public-facing military network. And someone anywhere in the world can hijack a unsecured computer on the network to launch their own evil-doings. Names please, not IP numbers.
